S/O - What (statement) jewelry are you wearing or wanting?

Like Tree82Likes

I tried posting this before and it got lost in the inter webs, so trying again!

What's your latest great statement piece? Where did you get it? Are you happy with it? Are you looking for anything in particular?

I love perusing the "What ___ are you wearing?" threads, and get lots of ideas from the "Rate this Look" threads, even though I don't post often.

My favorite staple items are good statement necklaces (and great shoes...)! They can be dressed up or down and help make a look more cohesive, polished, funky, whatever you're going for!

Here's my latest purchase from Baublebar, which I stared at for a couple of months before finally adding to my cart .

Currently, I'm searching for a great yellow multi-strand beaded necklace (preferably translucent beads of different sizes and strands of varied lengths), and a jade multi-strand necklace similar to this one (or someone to make me one :-)).

I love tortoise shell!

Me too, Po!

BTW, that necklace is not sold out. There was another really cute tortoise shell necklace at Bauble Bar that was 1/2 the price of this one that is sold out. This one is still in stock.

I bought this pendant for myself for the holidays. It's a portuguese water dog, which is what my beloved old Splashy is. It's a large silver piece, and I currently have it on just a braided leather necklace, with a few beads on it. I love it.

Also this was recently acquired by me. I bought it "used" on etsy for pretty cheap. It's a 2X3 inch slab of turquoise set in silver. It looks funky and cool on leather, or elegant on a silver chain.

I want some sort of vintage looking necklace on a long skinny chain.

And then I need long chains. I went through a phase when I was younger of short necklaces. Now all my chains are 14" or 16" and they're just too short so I have a jewelry box drawer of pendants w no good chains.

I got this online from ChichiMe. It is soooo beautiful. It is more layered in person. And sparkly. I love necklaces.

I finally got one of these bubble necklaces after lusting for months. I am too cheap to buy one at full price, but one of the blogs I follow did a sale code with ilycouture.com so I got it for about $20! I LOVE it and got tons of compliments when I wore it yesterday.

Since I have big/broad shoulders, I usually go for larger stuff. Delicate things look ridiculous on me.

I got this in Venice. I liked the colors.

I've had this for about 20 years, and the silver really needs polished. I love amber.

My first 'statement' piece. I got it as a Christmas gift in 8th grade. It was my Dad's idea. I competed in a lot of musical, academic, and spelling bee stuff, and tended to place second in almost everything. I always thought I was lame for not winning, lol.

It was sort of a running joke (not in a hurtful way) that I was #2. My Dad looked everywhere for a number 2 pendant, but all he could find was 1, 10, and 11. Bo Derek still had some influence.

So, my dad got this locket and had it engraved with #2. The joke was that I was the 'number 2 daughter' even though I'm the oldest child. I thought it was hilarious and awesome and fabulous. I told him that it was extra awesome because he never puts actual thought into gifts. That was my mom's job. Friends and extended family were horrified that my dad got me something that alluded to me being 'number 2', but we got it.

If I had to escape quickly in a fire, it's one of the things if try to take with me.

It's not always a statement piece in the true sense, but it's a statement to me. I don't wear it often, but, when I do, I enjoy telling the story to people who notice the #2 engraving and ask about it.
